November’s featured artist is someone who I met through volunteering for Type Kita, collaborated on some events and a fellow arts and crafts enthusiast. She’s none other than Jullien Olay!
Featured Artist of the Month: November
She is Jullien “Yen” Olay, and hails from Cavite. I met her through Type Kita when we volunteered for the event called Pass on the Passion. Currently, she works freelance and currently doing calligraphy specializing on baybayin. She’s also part of DnY Arts & Crafts where I bought my awesome baybayin phone cover.
Getting to know Jullien
What made you start with this craft?
- Love for Baybayin
- Filipino Creativity and Craftsmanship
How long have you been doing this craft?
Almost 1 year
Why did you pursue it?
I believe that idea will be just plain idea without doing something about it. Stepping out / sharing what you love is another story. We’re not just making profit out of passion. We’re making story out of passion. And it’s a calling.
